Someone said the budget is a moral document.  In today’s NY Times, Bob Herbert talks about what the budget-cutters and Obama are going to do to our poorer brothers and sisters.  The President’s budget director, Jacob Lew, said in The New York Times: “The budget is not just a collection of numbers, but an expression of our values and aspirations.”  The President should listen to him.
